    Great Labo set

    While my favorite Labo set would be the 01 Variety Pack, just because it has several great builds including the mini piano, this game has perhaps more content than the past sets. The builds are fun and take roughly an hour each, and I found to be really enjoyable. The build quality is great though I have a couple of complaints including the pull slider of the steering wheel how the part lifts up when it slides, but in practical use it isn't an issue. All the builds are smartly designed and fun to build and play with. Also it would have been nice to have some rubber bands pull the steering wheel back to a home position like other racing wheels, but as is it feels like driving a typical car especially with the HD rumble of the Joy-con. And make sure whoever plays has dry socks or considering the foot pedal may warp slightly, or simply devise some type of plastic covering for it. The gameplay is great and intuitive, and has a lot of Nintendo style and humor. Case in point you come across random shiny plastic toy characters from talking cows, cheerleaders, ghosts, snowballs, sumos, etc that bob around and give you various tasks on this fairly large variable climate island. As all of the builds give you new unique transportation some tasks require certain vehicles, and there are easily dozens of hours of gameplay here. The plane and car build are fairly intuitive while the submarine had the biggest learning curve for me and likely others. Some challenges alter the controls of your vehicle to amp up the difficulty for a few challenges. I have yet to try the two player mode, but it does require additional joy-con for a second player to arm a weapon. If you enjoyed any of the past Labo games or just want to get into it now with vehicles, I can highly recommend this pack.

    A more fleshed out game for Labo kits

    Coming out a fair bit after the release of the original Labo kits, this one expands greatly on many facets that the first two offered. For one, the interactive instructions are even more clear and concise than how they used to be presented, while also adding much more humor to it with the provided captions. The Toy-Cons they have you build are also much more complex, leaving you with the great feeling of accomplishment and wonder as you play with the end product. Speaking of playing, this game offers a lot of in terms of how to play with your newly built cardboard creations. The main game is a full Adventure mode that has you traversing across a huge island accomplishing a variety of different tasks from shooting various balloons as you fly around on an airplane to trying to knock a giant golf ball into a hole by driving into it. They also offer various different modes for racing, each of them ranging from simple for any age to full-blown cross-country races against time. This one also has the most offerings for multiplayer use, even with the just one of these kits purchased. Two players can explore the Adventure mode with one of them playing passenger with a rocket launcher on tow, an,d depending on the mode, up to four players can race against each other provided you have a Joy-Con for each player. Lastly, this game offers a variety of handy tutorials and ideas for you to create your own Toy-Con. This time around, they even let you program completely different ways to play all of the different modes, whether it's from your original cardboard controls or allowing yourself to play with just the regular Toy-Cons. This game offers fresh new takes and improvements from the original Labo kits and is a promising sign for future ones to come.

    This kit was packed with content! As usual, there are three sections: Make, Play, and Discover. There are also three vehicle kits to make: the car, submarine, and plane. There are also two "keys" and a spray can you can build. The directions to building the kids are very simple and easy to follow. The instructions also include cute little quips, adding some character and humor to the whole process. You can move the pieces around on the screen, allowing you to look closely at the models, which are also very true to form. The engineering behind the toy-cons are very ingenious--the pieces fit together perfectly and there are many steps to making them more sturdy. This kit includes more games than the previous two kits. The adventure mode is jam packed with content but there are other modes like racing, fighting, and decorating. You can also play with two people in certain modes. In Discover, you can learn how all of the parts work and there are moments when you can see from the point of view of the infrared camera. There are also some very basic engineering and physics concepts discussed, perfect for piquing a child's interest in STEM. Alongside the garage, where you can customize the creations to do different things, there is also a new mode that allows you to reprogram the controls for the games so you can play it differently. Overall I'd recommend this for anyone who really likes building things. It's a great activity either with kids or to do alone.

    Assembling the cardboard is great, the game is ok

    This was my first Labo kit and I loved assembling everything. The ingenuity here is incredible. My mind was repeatedly blown as I followed the instructions and watched as the contraptions all came together. This is definitely a product tailored to kids, but I had fun with it anyway. It brought me back to my days of building LEGO as a kid but with an appreciation for the creativity that went behind the design. The game itself is ok, nothing amazing. Controlling the different vehicles feels great but doesn't have much lasting appeal. If you have kids, I would highly recommend this. If you don't but enjoy building things, you may enjoy it anyway like I did.

    Cardboard on steroids!

    So you'll hear a lot of people complaining that LABO is "just cardboard". While that is true for the most part, it's so much more too. If you like to build models, do puzzles and spend quality time with other people, building the different kits does just that. I was skeptical at first, but after building a couple kits, I realized how much effort Nintendo put into designing these things and how much fun it was for my son and I to build them. It's quality time that will forever be remembered. I hope they produce more of them.

    I just started building this kit with my 7 year old. It definitely takes some time but it's really fun to put together. The cardboard is high quality and the directions on the Switch console are awesome. All I can think about when putting this together is how long it must have taken this engineering team to plan all of this out. Definitely high quality kit from Nintendo. Just be aware, it is not a quick build. You would need at least 5 hours to just build all of the pieces but that's part of the fun. Can't wait to finish it and start playing the games!

    I enjoyed this product, my kids 7 and 9 could care less. They were excited to play with them after I was done building them but they wouldn't help. It really depends on your kids, if I got this when I was a kid I would have stayed up for 2 days straight putting it together. If you're debating on whether or not your kids will build it and you like building things, just get it. You will have fun building it and your kids will have fun playing with it.

    Labo Toy-Con: Vehicle Kit, is a great edition to the Labo line of products, the realism of the game is superb, the flying, driving and diving gives you an un-parallel look and feel of the real thing, The fun and challenge in building the steering wheel, flight stick and sub controller are great (younger fans may need a little adult supervision). The key concept works well and the transition from one vehicle to another is really cool, If you’re a Switch owner and enjoy the interaction that only it can offer then this Labo is for you

    At MSRP it might be a hard sell for me, but for sale price it seems to be a good deal for some. I believe I spent more time building then kids playing. However building itself is a cool experience as the engineering that went it designing it. UI showing step by step with different angles for smaller children are great. I think it falls short as a actual game vs the puzzle building though which is what some might be after.

    Spent a few hours with my 9 year old son assembling everything. He was fascinated to see how everything came together and worked inside. He had a blast and it was easy enough to play that even my 4 year old was able to play. It is made of cardboard, so make sure you have a place safe to keep it. Although it is fairly sturdy I recommend setting it on a surface such as a dining tray, coffee table, etc for playing and then just place the pedal on the floor.

    This product not only provided quality time with my 10 year-old daughter putting it together: but had a blast playing the games with it. A bit pricey but you're not just paying for cardboard as some reviews lead you to believe. You are also getting the games (software) that this is used with: that has value. But most important is the time and interaction you spend with someone you like to spend time with. Priceless!

    i have to say that these Labo kits are supposed to be put together by adults or kids but used by kids only. once you do get it working, it is quite fun until the novelty wears off. for this kit 3, most owners already have at least 1 of the previous 2 kits so you know what to expect. you can buy extra cardboard from Nintendo to remake and put your new design to them, but otherwise, be warned of the short shelf life.

    This is great product, perfect for the cold months when we explore the Great Indoors of our house. Hours of assembly time, I think we spent 5+ hours building just the car setup with my son and then hours on the game and big screen time. The airplane is much easy and fast to build, but the car is so much fun to operate and drive around. Great product, we will buy more Labo's in future,

    Honestly, I had no idea what to expect from this when I bought it (I don't have the other Labo kits), but the quality of this surprised me. It certainly felt weird spending $$$ for so much cardboard, but after putting the pieces together and seeing everything that they had to design, it is money well spent (so far). My 5 year old kid has been playing for over a week now, and it's held up very well.

    I decided to pick some of these up since they were on sale during November and I have always been curious about these. Although I am definitely a gamer first, these are pretty fun and offer a different and clever way to utilize the Switch. The Vehicle kit interacts with Mario Kart which probably makes this one the best of the Labo offerings. The Variety kit is probably a close second.

    Labo is as creative as Nintendo has been in a long time, since Mario Paint. My 4 year old daughter loves the Labo kits and kit #3 is no exception. Driving the vehicles is a blast and the ability to import racing tracks you made with kit #1 is really cool. Also making maps of objects laying around your house or of your hands or face is quite clever. Don't listen to the naysayers. Labo is awesome!

    This vehicle kit for Labo is just as cool as the other Labo kits. The best part about this is that you can use the steering wheel to play Mario Kart 8 on the switch! That alone is reason enough to get this but you can drive lots of different vehicles in the game. I definitely recommend this to anyone who got the other Labo kits or if you want a cool new way to experience mario kart.

    This is the third set introduced on the LABO line and the best one in my opinion. This set provides more robust gaming experiences. You still get to build a couple of really neat things including a steering wheel and a flight stick. The main selling point here is that the games behind them are a little bit more robust, they feel more like games and not like small demos

    While I was a fan of the first Labo Kit, the Variety Kit, the Robot Kit's effect wore out on me fast. But, the third kit, the Vehicle Kit, might be the best one yet, due to an open world experience of doing missions with the three vehicles you can build. While I wish there was more to do after doing this open world part of the game, it's still a very fun time.
